After a successful first episode, the Raptr Podcast has returned with a brand new episode. This time with an official name and an exclusive interview with The OneUps, a rockin’ band with a passion for video game music.
In this week’s episode, we reveal an upcoming new feature that will expand topics to all things gaming. In addition, we chat about some recent data we supplied for an Ars Technica article, confirming that games are getting much shorter. We also discuss the phenomenon we call, “The video game tragedy”.
After dusting off our trusty Rolodex, we called up Mustin, who is the co-founder and band leader of a video game music band known as The OneUps. In this interview, we talk about the strangest venue The OneUps played at, how the group nearly got disbanded, and their upcoming debut tune that will probably be as popular as the game itself.
So put your headphones on and start listening to the Raptr Podcast #2 now!
